In Crete the sun shines three hundred days a year. The mild and tolerable
winter lasts from three to four months. The sun is often so hot that, as one journalist
wrote, the very palm-trees feel at home in Crete. The most delightful time of
year is spring or autumn. Snow, unknown on the plains, along the coast and in
the towns is seen only on the White
Mountains, on Psiloreitis
and on the Siteia Mountains during the winter season.
